Capacitor sensors have a wide range of applications. Some Applications which uses capacitor sensors are hygrometer, touch button found in lamps, motion detectors. Hygrometers employ the ability of the dielectric material in a capacitor to increase the value of the capacitance as the material absorbs water. Capacitor sensors are also used in micrometers. Micrometers are devices used to make accurate measurements. Inductance micrometer, optical micrometer and capacitance micrometer are the three high precision non-contact micrometers categories. The capacitance micrometer is widely used because it’s high performance to price ratio. The output of this sensors is a capacitance which gives rise to the problem of finding accurate ways to measure capacitance. This report makes use of a design specification to implement circuits that best measures the capacitance from a capacitance micrometer
